Global Governance Feminist Perspectives

by Shirin M. Rai

Global Governance Feminist Perspectives Synopsis

This book provides the first comprehensive analysis of global governance from a gendered perspective. It not only furthers the emerging feminist theorizing on global governance, but also provides a theoretically informed and empirically based analysis of both institutions and transformative practices.

Global Governance Feminist Perspectives Press Reviews

'Theoretically sophisticated, historically informed, and critically reflectve, this gender-sensitive volume significantly advances analyses of global governance. The contributors not only illuminate and draw linkages among crucial themes, but also take up the challenge of identifying multiple sites and strategies for taking action.' - V. Spike Petersen, Professor of Political Science, University of Arizona, USA 'Those who want to think deeply and widely about global governance will find this collection invaluable for its range, authority and clarity. I recommend it highly for researchers, practitioners and students.' - Gillian Youngs, University of Leicester, UK 'Bringing together respected feminist scholars of international relations theory and international political economy (IPE), this collection offers a rich, complex, intellectually powerful, and challenging examination of the highly gendered nature of global governance.' - Mary McAleese, Gender& Development
